Binding Römer Pils

(1/1)

BrewingRover:
I'm in Frankfurt, Germany on my way to Spain and saw Binding advertised as Frankfurt's local brewery. I try to heed Michael Jackson's advice and drink local beer whenever I can, so we had this on tap at a small bar in Mainz this afternoon. Wow, everything I've ever heard about fresh German beer is true. This has a lovely malt and hop balance, with a bit more bitterness than I was anticipating. We had two of these as dusk fell over Schillerplatz, before heading off for our train.

I highly recommend Mainz, should you pass this way. It's a very walkable town and St. Stephan's Church has stunning stained glass by Marc Chagall. Some nice nice strolling along the Rhine as well.

hopfenundmalz:
I agree with what you said. Mainz is a wonderful German city, St. Stephan's is unlike other churches because of the Chagall windows. The Dom is one of the best examples of a Romanisch style church in Germany.

Binding however, was held with disdain by my German friends while I lived in the area. Maybe I should try that again next time.

Yeah, I saw that it didn't do well on Ratebeeradvocate also. A fresh pilsner is still such a rare thing in the US, other than BMC of course, so a lot of the enjoyment was how fresh it was.
